After a Home Inspection

Do it yourself for common home repairs

A do it yourself project…

If you are a person that is good with working with your hands, and good at following instructions, then many home repairs can be done without the need of hiring someone DIY. When you choose to do some minor plumbing repairs remember to shut off the main valve for the house, or the valves for your particular project. But keep in mind – valves not used for a long time may leak, or break, so be careful. And if you decide to do some minor electrical work, be sure that the power to your project is off. Always have a great deal of respect and awareness for electricity.

They should be able to do the work of many different trades, thus avoiding minimum charges when utilizing many trades (I.e. plumber, painter, electrician…). You might want to give the handyman you chose a small task, or two. This way you can see how well the quality of work is performed, before awarding more work. An unqualified handyman can make things worse.

Projects like roofing, structural, and electrical may need a permit, and the dollar amount may require that a licensed professional be hired by law. Always be sure to do your homework. If someone says there licensed, be sure to look up the appropriate state website and verify they are licensed and insured. Always ask for referrals, and it is wise to pay as you go with the project. The less money upfront the better for your financial protection.
